Increased number of tourists expected in 2013

Cyprus is expected to attract an increased number of tourist arrivals in 2013, says communications minister Efthymios Flourenzou.

The newly established direct flights between Cyprus and Ukraine as well as bookings made so far from Russia and Britain justify our optimism regarding tourism, he said.

He was speaking during a visit yesterday to Larnaca airport, where he was briefed about the flights and arrivals to both Larnaca and Paphos.

“We hope that an increased number of tourist arrivals will be recorded this year,” Flourentzou said, pointing out that this will benefit not only airports but also the hotel industry and the island’s economy at large.

Asked on which data he bases his optimism, the Minister said, “on the bookings already made in Russia”, adding that another positive development is the direct flights between Cyprus and Ukraine which will begin soon but also the indications from the British market.
